Pushing Boundaries has a Fresh Coat of Paint!
In the spirit of service, board member Marci Muhlestein organized a group from her church to lend a fresh coat of paint to many of PB’s walls!

CAAC Connection: PB Representation at Sound Transits
We are excited to announce that PB Programs Manager Kristen Knight has joined the Citizens Access Advisory Committee! Founded in 1999, the Citizens Accessibility Advisory Committee (CAAC) provides feedback regarding challenges and solutions for people with disabilities and older adults using Sound Transit buses and trains. The work of this committee enhances other public involvement groups and activities through its crucial focus on ADA compliance and accessibility best practices.
After witnessing all of the challenges that many of our clients have with transportation, Kristen joined to be a representative voice for the PB community.
The CAAC is still seeking additional new members! If you want to join Kristen and other volunteers, more spots are available. For information on the committee and the work they do, click HERE!
